Peter Pan Collars FOREVER!

Maybe there will come a time when I am "too old" for the Peter Pan Collar. Maybe that time has already come. I don't know. What I do know is that if something has a Peter Pan Collar then I am approximately one million point five times more likely to (want to) buy it. That, my friends, is maths.

Alack, my luscious mane is obscuring the wonderment of the Peter Pan Collar in this photo. But behold my slightly-condescending-visage. It looks like I am judging you. Perhaps I am. Perhaps, I was judging Dan as he tried valiantly to take photos of me! Will we ever know? Stay tuned to find out.

This green dress is one of maybe five go-to dresses that I own. Most of them weren't expensive, but they almost all have adorable collars. I like to wear this dress with white tights and patent black brogues. White tights are something of a new discovery for me, and I love patent shoes because they remind me of being a child, and also the scene in Twin Peaks where Nadine is worried that boys will be able to see up her skirt in the reflection in her shoes.
This blog post will be short and sweet, whilst I line up some more exciting things for you to look at. I've devised what is quite possibly the perfect autumn/winter cookie, and I have to show you the recipe, even though it is what I'd call a "cheat's recipe". My fortnight has been filled with looking after an ill Hemingway, attending pre-interview tests for a library job, attending appointments as well as celebrating our four-year anniversary, hallowe'en, and our friend's birthday. It's been busy, and there are some exciting things in store for the future!
If you don't believe me about my OBSESSION with the Peter Pan Collar, why not find out how wrong you are by looking here, or here or even here.

Minty Sailor

Donc Alors...

A couple of weeks back, Dan and I went to Arigato, a Japanese supermarket near Picadilly Circus, to pick up some supplies. We get most of our Japanese ingredients there, and almost always overspend! Recently, we'd seen okonomiyaki on the youtube channel Cooking With Dog and Dan decided that he HAD to make it. At times like these, a trip to Arigato is always mandatory.

On our way home, Dan took some photos of me because the light was nice.

I had been dreaming of minty teal tights for a long while, and finally bought some for my friend Sharon's wedding. They are from H and M, and are slightly too minty for my liking, but they go with the outfit quite well, je pense!

I had my baritone ukulele with me, because I'd been to a rehearsal with Robin Grey, who teaches me the ukulele, when we aren't rehearsing.
This was Dan's finished okonomiyaki. He even prepared the octopus from scratch. It was extremely tasty, and very filling. That one wasn't very big, but we still couldn't finish it! The best way I can describe it is as a sort of Japanese Spanish Omelette/Tortilla... Ours had octopus, bacon, spring onions, and other joyous things, but the joy of okonomiyaki is that you can include almost anything!

Melancholy

I haven't had the best weekend, to be honest. On Saturday I was meant to be getting my contact lenses, but the Optician had only ordered one eye, so I have to go back next week. I am especially gutted because I am in a charity fashion show on Wednesday, and I am not only the shortest in my group, but I am also the only one in the whole show who wears glasses. I am choreographing one of the Labels, Reiss with my friend Hannah, who is gorgeously tall, skinny, and quirky looking. So I am feeling a little under par there.

Then on Sunday I had an Oboe nightmare. I don't really want to go into it. it was just horrible and degrading.

For some reason, I have this abition to conquer the internet, one site at a time. I have created a youtube account, and I have myspace and facebook. I hate bebo, and I want to delete my bebo account.

I think it has something to do with my fear of being forgotten. I guess I sort of want to be famous. But not in an 'it-girl' sort of way. In an ideal world I would love to be a comedian. But I hate the way that all women who are comedians have to put up with the 'female comedienne' label. why can't you just be a comedian who happens to be a woman? why does it have to be such a big deal that you are a woman comedian? you never get "ooohhhh gosh, it is a male comedian!", do you? So I would love to be a comedienne, amongst other things. At some point, when I have a bit more time, I shall make a list of all of my ambitions. When I am feelinga bit more positive about myeslf, and my ability to achieve them!

I found an excellent blog the other day. But i can't rememeber the URL. I am gutted!!!
